Hyperobjects and Ecologies of Artworks is a series of critiques led by Odalis Valdivieso in which participants will situate their artworks into the sphere of an ecosystem affecting not only the space they occupy but how they demand an action from the viewers as well. Current markets transform artworks into hyperobjects–appropriated word from Timothy Morton, who defines them as entities of such vast temporal and spatial dimensions that they defeat traditional ideas about what a thing is in the first place. These objects of great speculative value, occupy spaces more as empty vessels than accumulations of processes instead. How can they serve as means of artistic practice and the performative role of the audience? The critiques will include artworks by each and all participants and they will be structured as departing points for testing ideas about affect, rationale, as well as the ecosystem they create when grouped all together in one space.

Deborah Levitt: Animation and the Medium of Life

Deborah Levitt: Animation and the Medium of Life
Thursday, September 22, 2016 | 7:00 PM

ArtCenter/South Florida is pleased to present Deborah Levitt: Animation and the Medium of Life in conjunction with the exhibition An Image. Her talk will address our contemporary image ecology through what she calls the age of the animatic apparatus. The animatic apparatus marks the emergence of animation as the dominant medium of our time coinciding with developments in the biological sciences that open possibilities for producing living beings. While these might appear as disjunct cultural fields, with no causal and little conceptual relation, understanding the link between Dolly the cloned sheep and her progeny (metaphorically speaking) and the multimediated bodies of cinema and video are a key to understanding the time in which we live. Today, the horizon of possibility offered by simulation in both art and science—from cartoons and the animatic effects of CGI to various dreamt and incarnate potentials of biological production—are shifting the reigning cultural paradigms of life in significant ways, moving away from questions about ontology, category, and being, to ones of appearance, metamorphosis, and affect.

BRUNCH & FILM SCREENING

9_6_station2_bg_1000_420_90_c1

Closing Reception | Geometry in Motion
Brunch & Film Screening of Central Station
Sunday, September 25, 2016 | 11:00am
O Cinema Wynwood
90 NW 29th St, Miami, FL 33127

O Cinema Wynwood & ArtCenter/South Florida invite you to the closing reception of Geometry in Motion, an exhibition by Heloisa Botelho.

Starting at 11:00 am, guests will enjoy a complimentary light brunch of baked goods, fruit and mimosas. Then at 11:30 am, guests will be invited into the auditorium for a free film screening of Central Station.

Central Station
Central Station is a profoundly moving tale of the human spirit, featuring an unforgettable lead performance by Fernanda Montenegro. Inside Rio de Janeiro’s bustling Central Station, two very unlikely souls are about to become inextricably linked. When a young boy (Vinicius de Oliveira) witnesses his mother’s accidental death, a lonely retired school teacher reluctantly takes the child under her wing. Although initially distrustful of each other, the two form an uncommon bond as they venture from the bustling city to Brazil’s barren and remote northeast region in search of the boy’s father. Together, the two embark on a journey of the heart that restores the woman’s spirit and teaches the child precious life lessons.

Geometry in Motion
Botelho has created a new series inspired by Copacabana in her hometown of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and her new home in Miami. In this series, she introduces imagery and circular shapes, an influence of the Art Deco architecture that abounds in her new city. Using a monotyping technique influenced by one of her mentors, Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes, Botelho draws with charcoal and creates collages by transferring geometric shapes painted on plastic sheets to the canvas. As a result of this technique, shapes are not exact as they get lost during the transfer process. By extracting the brush from the painting process she incorporates the element of chance.

Botelho’s interest in collage carries over to the installation, Art Around the Corner. In this installation, Botelho uses postcards that she has collected over the last 10 years from her time in Boston, New York and Miami to create a collage mimicking the patterns created in her paintings.
